About Niv Shimshon – Toronto Wedding Photographer
I’m Niv Shimshon.
And I know that pictures aren’t just another thing on the wedding day to-do list, but rather a chance to relive your love, as long as you both shall live. At the end of the day, I will always choose people over things. The laughter in your eyes as the best man ties his tie. The cake frosting on your fingertips after sharing bites. And the beaming, bright smile on your mom’s face as she gets spun around the dance floor. I capture what makes your marriage (and your day) so incredibly memorable. After all, the most magic happens in small moments among your friends, family, and partner—not in staged photos of shoes or stiff snapshots of the cutlery. Your love is exceptionally you, and your wedding photos will be, too.
Born in Tel-Aviv, Israel and now committed to soaking up the Toronto sun in Canada, I’ve travelled the world in order get my eyes opened wide. As a result, I see just how stunning every single second can be. With my wife Alex on one side, my baby girl Olive on the other, and our dog Freddy in the middle, my everyday life is brightly lit with fits of laughter and so much love.
I’ve won a number of industry accolades, including the Fearless Photographers Award and the Alpha Wolf Award, and I’m a current member of WPPI. My work has been featured in Style me pretty, Junebug weddings, the Wedding Co, Rock ‘n Roll Bride, Tribe Red Leaf, Smashing the Glass, My day and Urban brides (Hebrew).
I’m based in Toronto, ON, but am available for destination weddings worldwide.
